About Fidelito Ranch & Lodge

Costa Rica Lodge & Ranch

Our exclusive private farm of 60 ha (150 acres) is a tranquil retreat in the spectacular setting of the densely forested Tambor hills and the nearby Rio Panica. Which its pasture, forest and small idyllic creeks, it offers a beautiful natural scenery.

Our love for animals and nature has always been a top priority. The farm was acquired in 1994 in order to develop the reforestation. Besides that we now take care of cattle breeding and dedicate ourselves to our horses.

The farmhouse and the separate guesthouses blend into the natural surroundings. Here you will surely find the ideal base and starting point for a memorable and carefree vacation.

Guests Love Us!

A slice of heaven!

I stayed at this little paradise with a friend for a few days while traveling around CR. If we had more time we would have stayed longer. Its simply amazing! Growing up with horses, i got to ride in places that i only dreamed about as a kid. For me, heavenly! i would recommend this place to anyone. The sweet couple that runs it makes you feel right at home. The rooms are spacious and very clean and beautifully decorated. The large tiki hut where they serve breakfast is so cozy. Perfect place to hang out with other guests and tell travel stories:) If you are planning on a trip to CR, spend a few days at this place. You will not regret it! I will be back for sure:)

Comfortable beds, amazing owners, great breakfast and beautiful nature! Loved it!

We booked the night very last minute but the owners were so so so great and had everything ready when we arrived late at night. The room/apartment building we booked (4p) were booked so they gave us a building for 10 p! They made the best breakfast (8 usd pp) and we even got to see a bunch of howler monkeys – the first ones on our trip other than hearing them. Thank you for an amazing stay of only one night – we would’ve loved to stay longer if we had had the time.
